The Kansas City Water Works building, located at 201 Main Street in the River Market, was constructed in 1905. In its past life, the main floor was designed to house a stable with stalls for 40 horse, space for 35 buggies and wagons, a harness room, washrooms, and a furnace room, which supplies steam heat for the building. The second floor was designed for offices of the superintendents of Pipe Lines and the Meter Department. This floor also once included a blacksmith shop, wagon repair shop and a large storage room for hay.
201 Main is currently under renovations that will restore its historical original character and create modern tenant improvements, design and infuse art in all facets of the project. The improvements will be to both the interior and exterior and range from new operable windows for fresh air and natural light, brick and mortar restoration, new exterior awnings, tenant signage, new private restrooms for each suite, and upgrades to the lobby. The Water Building is conveniently located just one block away from the street car line, with easy connections to the entire downtown.
There are currently two office suites available on the second floor: 4,530 SF and 5,600 SF. Two more suites will become available on the first floor this fall: a 4,415 SF office space and a 5,534 SF restaurant/retail space.
